What we're about

ABWA is a premier women's organization. We support members through education, networking support, leadership opportunities, and local and national recognition. Working women, business owners, and women who wish to remain active in retirement are welcome. Men are also welcome! Learn more about Novi Oaks Charter Chapter and make reservations at www.novi-abwa.org.

Our local Novi Oaks scholarships for women are offered every year, including two $2,000 Impact Scholarships for Michigan residents, and a $1,000 scholarship for students of Madonna University (contact us through our website - deadline for the Impact Scholarships is March 31). National scholarships for women of up to $10,000 are offered through the ABWA National Stephen Bufton Memorial Educational Fund at www.sbmef.org.

Our local meetings are held on the 2nd Wednesday of every month at the Holiday Inn at Laurel Park in Livonia with networking at 6:00 p.m., dinner at 6:30 p.m., followed by a business-relevant speaker and a short business meeting (cost via mail is $22 and $23 online using PayPal or credit card). Prepaid reservations are required. Meet area professional women and learn more about ABWA and the benefits it offers!

Novi Oaks was founded on January 29, 1990, so we have celebrated 30 years and counting. The national American Business Women's Association celebrated 70 years on September 22, 2019! You can join ABWA for the cost of $115 nationally and $24 dues locally. Student memberships are only $50! Learn more about the national organization at www.abwa.org.

Other Michigan chapters are located in Ann Arbor, Auburn Hills, Flint, Frankenmuth, Southfield, and Utica. For links to all chapters in Michigan and the U.S., visit our website at http://www.novi-abwa.org (lower right corner of each page).
